KMF2015

Harnessing Creative Disruption:
Unlocking the Power of Inclusive Innovation

5 & 6 October 2015

Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

Concept Paper

In 1488, Portuguese nobleman Bartolomeu Dias discovered the Cape of Storms or, as it was later renamed, the Cape of Good Hope. Dias was on a royal mission, appointed by King John II of Portugal to head an expedition around the southern tip of Africa in hopes of finding a sea-based trade route to India. The discovery of the Cape of Good Hope meant that Europeans could trade directly with India and bypass the overland route through the Middle East, which was controlled by the Ottomans, with its expensive middlemen. Even though the voyages were far beyond their borders, the traders in the Middle East were adversely affected; indeed, they were disrupted. This eventually led to the rise of Western European Age of Discovery powers such as the Portuguese and the Spanish and the eventual downfall of the Ottoman empire which, in the years following the death of Suleiman the Magnificent, had been labelled ‘the sick man of Europe.”
